Police: Man attacked, stomped woman's face

- Sandy Springs police are looking for the man accused of attacking a woman and stomping on her face.

Police said they are looking for the man depicted in a sketch they released this week approached a woman at the Park at Abernathy Square apartments.

He asked if she wanted to buy an Atlanta Falcons t-shirt even though he did not have any shirts with him, according to police.

Investigators said that is when he demanded all her money and attacked her.

"He just reached out and started to attack her, threw her to the ground and stomped on her head with his feet," said Sandy Springs Police Capt. Michael Lindstrom.

The woman told FOX 5 News another man saw what was going on and scared off the attacker.  The woman says she believes that man likely saved her life.

"I feel like if that guy hadn't seen what was going on and yelled out, he wouldn't have stopped, he would have killed me," said the woman who did not want FOX 5 News to use her name.

The woman still has black eyes and bruises on her face, nine days after the April 30th attack. She is scared. She said it was hard when she could not hide the bruises and the truth from her two young daughters.

"When I went to tuck my youngest into bed she asked me to not kiss her goodnight because I don't look like mommy anymore," said the woman.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sandy Springs Police Department.
